Application Process

Get started today on your future at Seton Hall Prep

In order to be considered for admission to Seton Hall Prep for the 9th grade, an applicant must fulfill the following requirements:

  1. Complete and submit the Seton Hall Prep Application for Admission along with the $60 application fee. This step includes registering for Seton Hall Prep's Entrance/Placement/Scholarship Exam.  Online Applications are now being accepted.
  2. Our final admission examination for the incoming Class of 2022 will be offered on Saturday, February 24 at 9:00 AM.  Please know that all testers on this date will automatically be placed on our wait list and admittance will be granted only on a space-available basis.  In addition, all applications for merit-based scholarship and/or need-based financial assistance will be placed on our wait list.
  3. Submit final transcripts for the 6th and 7th grade and for the first marking period(s) of the 8th grade. In order to do this, complete the Transcript Release Form and return it to the applicant's current school so that they can forward his records to Seton Hall Prep. 

Once you have completed your online application, you will be able to log into our website and check the status of your application.  Admission to 9th grade is based upon an applicant’s performance on The Seton Hall Prep Entrance/Scholarship/Placement Exam AND on his 6th, 7th, and 8th grade records.

The Prep's Admission Office welcomes letters of recommendation for applicants, but they are NOT a required element of the SHP application process. Admissions decisions will be posted electronically and mailed home by Monday, March 12.
